According to Richard, Maricar sprained her right foot while shooting a scene as Samantha showing her immortality as a vampire after she had been cursed. However, Richard said he was very happy that Maricar’s fight scene with Daniel had trended on social media.

In fact, Richard claimed that many people were texting him saying Maricar looked very pretty in her white dress. He said he enjoyed watching her although he was quite disturbed because, for several weeks, Maricar had been suffering from the injury she acquired during the taping.

“It’s nice to watch her, although disturbing for me siguro for ilang weeks, four or five weeks, kasi she got injured.”

“Hindi naman alam ng madlang people so we kept it. Alangan namang sabihin ko na napilay ang wife ko nung ginawa niya ‘yung stunt scene.”

“Pero ang hirap sa bahay kasi iika-ika siya. Kapag lumabas kami ang hirap, hindi ba? So ‘yun lang medyo I had to take care of her.”

Richard also shared that Maricar had bruises, too. During tapings, they had to cover Maricar’s bruises so it won’t be visible on TV. He said that made him worried about his wife but then, he was grateful that there were people taking care of Maricar on the set.

Maricar said that’s the reason why in the succeeding episodes of La Luna Sangre, she was seen wearing flats while recuperating from her injury.

Meanwhile, Samantha was eventually killed by Richard Gutierrez who plays “Sandrino”, her half-brother.
